who voted for barack obama and get him to vote for me. >> he's down but not out. can he turn it around with an october surprise? let's welcome stephanie cutter. it's going reasonably well for you guys. it's been a good couple weeks, really since the conventions. you've got a bit of momentum but i guess you're not taking this too complacently. >> no, absolutely not, piers. you know, debates can be a pivotal moment in campaigns. i remember eight years ago when john kerry was getting ready to debate george bush, we were eight points down. coming out of that first debate we were tied with george bush. so there is an opportunity for mitt romney if he takes advantage of it next wednesday night, to turn the momentum around. he not only has to win this debate but has to change the dynamics in this race. we know he's going to show up prepared, disciplined and aggressive, even tim pawlenty said that he's as good as it gets when it comes to debating. but the question is whether or not he's going to be able to talk to the american people specifically about what his plans are for this country. that
vote for barack obama and joe biden. >> i was there. you electrified the place. they all say why do we have the 22nd amendment. why couldn't bill clinton run and be president for the next 30 years? >> we have it for good reasons. it's a hard job being president. you also have a vast array of people working for you. it worked, i think, well. i think we did the right thing to keep president roosevelt for a third term. when he died shortly after being elected to a fourth term and people didn't really know a full measure of his health challenges, the 22nd amendment passed. it's ironic at a time people thought the democrats had a lot in the white house. then it was, then after the last 50 years, the republicans had it more than the democrats. but, i think there's still an argument for saying that eight years, certainly eight years in a row is enough. you don't want this -- you don't want to run the risk of sclerosis in a democratic society. you don't want to give the idea that any country, particularly this one as big and diverse is dependent on any one person. look at the dictators that ha
to vote for obama like a crisis in europe. the most bullish sign for romney has been the stock market is getting jittery about spain and europe. that october surprise scenario could move the numbers, but romney's running out of time for routine things like the debates and the set pieces in the campaign. >> how important -- i mean president clinton told me last night that the debates will be crucial for romney. he could turn everything around. one great debate, in the first debate particularly. if he can taurnd the 47% fiasco, which has been a disaster because of the impression he gave, that he didn't understand who the 47% were. the arrogance that comes with being a wealthy, detached guy not caring about people who need help. what can he do in that debate? what would you recommend him to do? >> i think the 47% comments revealed he wasn't doing what 101 politics say you should do and play to the center. he has written off people that might have the median income and below. that's not a typical strategy. the text book strategy is can you find a way. the speech in ohio is an example of t
jobs to virginia. >> talking jobs in battleground america. president obama and mitt romney today in the crucial state of virginia. both candidates fighting for every vote. let's bring in my political all-stars, charles blow, op ed columnist for the "new york times" and republican pollster, kristen soltis. kristen, let me start with you. your guy's in a hell of a lot of trouble. i'm looking at some polls here, doesn't matter who you believe, suffolk university, fox news, quinnipiac, "new york times," cbs, all of them in virginia against likely voters have obama comfortably ahead. this is a big problem for mitt romney, isn't it? >> i don't think it's quite a big a problem as you have made it out to be. there was a poll suffolk university had out just tonight that had obama up by two. so it is true you've got obama up in swing states like virginia by small margins. but there's become this narrative that's really developed over the last week that the race is starting to get away from governor romney that i think is not really founded in necessarily good data. you know, out of five po
, and they will vote for this president no matter what. >> president obama's new television attack ad due to air in seven key battleground states focusing on romney's 47% comment. with me now, my all-stars, charles blow and kristen soltis. kristen, again, this is a problem, isn't it, for mitt romney because that 47% thing is now going to be a huge stick to beat him over the head with the next 40 days. also quite interestingly, i thought today, you've got a new video released by the liberal leaning website mother jones which shows romney as bain ceo. take a look at this. then i will come back to you. >> bain capital is an investment partnership which was formed to invest in startup companies and ongoing companies, then to take an active hand in managing them and hopefully five to eight years later, to harvest them at a significant profit. >> mitt romney's campaign had this to say about this video, in addition to starting up new businesses, mitt romney helped build bain capital by turning around broken companies, creating and saving thousands of jobs. the problem today is president obama hasn't be
will vote for change. >> as always, thank you very much. >> thank you, piers. >>> joining me now with a view from the other side is bill daily, co-chair of the obama national campaign and president obama's former chief of staff. welcome to you. how are you? >> very well, thank you, piers. >> how are the nerves in the obama camp? because the problem for president obama is everyone imagines he's a great speaker, but that puts huge pressure on him to be a great speaker on the night. >> well, i don't know if it's so much about being a great speaker. obviously the president's done a number of debates back in '08. governor romney's done a lot more, more recent, and there's no question they are both very bright people and they know their facts and the president's going to speak to the american people in a format that's very different. i think the real question at this point is what's the size of the audience and how interested will the american people be in this debate. we've heard a lot -- had a lot of hype about it, but at this debate, two things will come out. actual details of plans, i think th
